“If God does indeed exist, then He is good, and He is just, and He stands upon the side of right.”
Dina L. Sleiman, Dauntless

“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you'll recover your life. I'll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won't lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you'll learn to live freely and lightly.”
Jesus of Nazareth

Dina Sleiman Hi Goodreads Friends,

Sorry I was gone for awhile. My new lap top wasn't cooperating with this website. But in happier news, my first book was accepted for publication. So hopefully you can all add Dance of the Dandelion to your lists next year :)
